NOTICE TO VOTERS – The November 3, 2020 General Election will be conducted by MAIL BALLOT ONLY.
As allowed by a directive from the Governor, each county is authorized to run the General Election by Mail Only due to COVID-19.

Please contact us at 406-466-2693 to make sure we have your current residential and mailing address to avoid delays in getting your ballot to you.  Ballots will be mailed on October 9th and must be returned (not postmarked!) by 8:00 PM on Election Day – November 3rd.  Please make sure you return your ballot in plenty of time for the postal service to process it.  The USPS recommends sending it at least a week prior to Election Day.  Your return postage has been prepaid so no stamps are necessary.  You may also drop your ballot off at the Election Office if you don’t feel comfortable mailing it back.

The Election Office is open extended hours this week, Oct 26 – 31 to help meet your last minute needs.  M-F   7am – 6pm  &  Sat 10am – 2pm.

Go to My Voter Page to see if you are registered to vote and which county and address you are registered at. Completed Voter Registration Forms and Absentee Ballot Applications may be printed and mailed in, faxed or sent by email.  Late Registration begins on October 27th – you must appear in person at the Elections Office to register to vote in the November 3rd Election beginning on this date.

As always, you can vote in person at the Elections Office at the Teton County Courthouse.  Just bring the ballot that was mailed to you and use one of the booths set up in the hallway and deposit your voted ballot in the drop box.  If you choose to wait until Election Day to vote in person,  please note that you might be asked to wait in your vehicle until a voting booth is free as we try to limit traffic in to the building in order to sanitize between voters.
